Products from Schacht Spindle Company are custom made by skilled craftspeople in Boulder Colorado. Due to high demand, current lead times are 4-6 weeks. (updated November 2023)

Schacht’s Standard Floor Loom has a high castle, available with 36″ and 45″ weaving widths. Both looms function in the same way. The high castle includes a storage tray; you will also appreciate holes drilled in the top of the castle uprights for an extension lamp.

All Standard Floor Looms may be ordered with 8 or 4 Now-4 Later* shafts. The number of shafts you choose will depend on the kind of weaving you intend to do. If you have a keen interest in pattern drafting and weave structures, 8 shafts will allow you to fully develop your skills.

The Standard Floor Loom has an underslung jack mechanism to raise the shafts. The jacks pivot from two points equidistant from the center and lift the shafts by pushing up on the center point. We employ a parallel lamm system that gives our looms a light treadling action without any adjustment of tie-up cords.

Our tie-up system is quick and easy to use. Pre-measured nylon tie-up cords hang from the lamms and are attached to a treadle by sliding the appropriate cords into the treadle slot. This makes changing tie-ups very fast.

Other special features of our Standard Floor Looms include: friction-reducing aluminum shaft channels, a back beam that folds with or without a warp on the loom, removable back and breast beams, and an adjustable open-sided beater. Our braking system employs a ratchet and dog on the cloth beam and a friction brake on the warp beam—this combination give you precise tension control at all times.

*The 4 Now-4 Later model is an 8-shaft loom shipped with 4 shafts installed and the space to add an additional 4 shafts. You can purchase a kit to add 4 shafts at a later time. These looms are shipped with all the heddles, tie-ups, and other items normally included with an 8-shaft loom.

Reed Selection:  After you complete checkout, we'll be in touch to confirm that you've ordered exactly what you want, and to select your reed dent.
